“Every community needs a little theater ---City Park Players is YOURS, CENLA!”
Welcome to the 2018 season of City Park Players productions! This year, we are celebrating our 80th Anniversary with a stellar lineup of comedies and dramas. Thanks to your support of CENLA’s original community theater, providing quality productions to our community since 1938, City Park Players (CPP) has a robust, eclectic slate of shows for 2018. In response to patron feedback, the five regular-season shows are a mixture of comedy, drama and mystery, so there is something to appeal to a wide range of audience interests.
The season ticket pricing structure remains a real bargain for this community, so consider taking advantage of that method for your tickets. Season tickets are provided as “any time” tickets: The 5 show tickets can be used in any combination for any production. Individual show tickets continue to be available at the door before each performance.
Be sure to visit our website at cpptheatre.com - you can buy tickets, learn about CPP’s current and past shows, read Audition Notices, learn how to volunteer, view photographs, and read our monthly blog. Also check out our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. We’ve received patron feedback and have responded with broader communication efforts.
Ticket sales comprise about 50% of CPP budget, so sponsors, underwriters and in-kind donations are welcome additions that enable us to continue the variety of programming to the community. The effort to engage in youth theater opportunities and to seek ways to collaborate with local schools continues. Because City Park Players is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, contributions are tax-deductible.
You are invited to join us in a CPP production – many talents and skills are welcome-acting, directing, producing, set-building, painting, light and sound board operation, costuming, etc. We would love to hear from you! Patron feedback is highly valued as your all-volunteer Board of Directors begins plans for the 2019 season. We would love to hear from you!
Many thanks to you for joining City Park Players for our 2018 season! We look forward to seeing you at the theatre --- we’re saving a seat for you!
